9th Annual Book Bonanza!



I must admit that I avoid the shops like the plague on this weekend because people!
Scary, angry, non-festive festive shoppers out for all the bargains (that every year are becoming less bargain-y) and ruining the shopping for everyone else.



The only civilized way to shop this weekend is online.



So let me enable one of you lovely bookish people with some shopping!


I'm giving away a $10 Amazon giftcard to one winner so they can treat themselves OR you can choose a book (up to the value of £/$15) to be delivered via The Book Depository.

Giveaway is open internationally (but Amazon/Book Depository must be accessible to your country).

Entrants over 18 years only.

  1. I have never gone shopping on Black Friday. I live near two malls, a Best Buy, and now closed Toys R Us, and it was crazy coming home from Thanksgiving dinner and seeing the people lined up around the stores.

  2. I don't usually partake in black friday here in Canada, it has gotten crazier throughout the years. I can't even drive through the streets tomorrow, it was wayy to busy last year. I tend to look for deals on cyber week, or boxing month.. lol

  6. I don't like the ordinary shops on a normal day so nothing would get me out during the sales especially Black Friday! I do any shopping over the festive period on Amazon!
